Our first surveillance camera mapping outing of the Fall is this Saturday, September 12th, 11am to 3pm in Boston. Register here. We will meet on Boston Common near the MBTA Park Street stop.
We will have another on Saturday, October 17th, 11am to 3pm in Worcester – Register here.
Both events will be outdoors. We encourage everyone to a wear mask and socially distance.
For those who would prefer to work on their own, we setup some tutorials at https://masspirates.org/wiki/Mapping_Surveillance including:
- Using OSM Field Papers. This tutorial allows you to generate papers of maps of an area that you can hand out to people to mark the cameras they find.
- Mapping Cameras with OpenStreetMap’s Web UI
- Mapping Cameras with Go Map!! on the iPhone
Thanks to John and Steve for putting these tutorials together.
It looks like Chelsea is pushing an expansion of surveillance cameras downtown, so that might be a site for a Winter outing. Contact us at email@example.com if you want to hold a similar event where you live.
